Spider-Man sees a bunch of non-rich-looking kids get into a helicopter, he gets suspicious and stows on board. The kids are being taken to a mansion owned by an alien, whose evil plan is to get teens to have unprotected sex. And Spidey saves them.

what a dork.

I like this one. It shows that Spiderman has all sorts of hang-ups. I think it has more to do with his own upbringing than anything - not rich? You don't get to be on a chopper. Nerd? No sex for you.

Warnings about the Anti-Super Registration Act absent.

Or was it the Mutant registration Act?

Or was it...

Oh, just forget it.

I had the Marvel Heroes Of Hope book and the DC Heroes Against Hunger (sweet Neal Adams cover, anyway). That was back when we were all very concerned about Africa. Remember that? I'm sure glad we got that all sorted out.

Not a superhero PSA, but the PSA comic with mickey mouse taking a drug to treat gonorrhea was wtf.

One reason why I think in the end Joss Whedon will end up doing a Batman movie - one of his specialities is making sure his heroes are punished if they ever become happy or have a positive relationship with someone else, which really fits the mood/style of Batman.

I laughed so hard at the Batman landmine PSA. Who the fark picks up anything out of the dirt and immediately thinks "TOY!" That biatch clearly deserved to die to prevent her carelessly stupidity from being passed down to future generations.

Children pick them up.  And would that make them more or less deserving of dying?  It's a whole lot more common than you think.  The Russians, knowing that children are naturally curious, designed their PFM-1 anti-infantry high-explosive mine--the butterfly mine--to appeal to children.  They made them small, funny shaped like a butterfly, and brightly colored.

Damn, did you never leave your house when you were a kid?

Hell, I used to pick up all kinds of things outside that I had no idea what they were, because I wanted to figure out what they were.  Of course, I don't live in a third world country and had to be wary of active mines.

Last one there is a penis pump. Ahh fark! Hey wat are you kids doing on my lawn? And don't look at me while im talking to you. Give him the stick you little wankers. DON'T give him the stick. Do you know my dad? OOOOoooohhhhhhhhh..

People live happy lives, and BOOM.  Landmine.  That's how it works.

It's a much better way to get the message across than the other 9 on the list.

Don't forget: America's CIA went to Afghanistan to train the folks who would eventually become Al Queda, because they wanted the Taliban to fight the Soviets for us. The Russians fought these guys for a long time, and they got used to some pretty awful suicide tactics from the Afghans, who would have no problem sending children in to blow themselves up in the name of their holy war.

So the Russians targeting children with landmines doesn't seem like such a horrible act, in that light.

Of course, the whole thing was reprehensible, but it was what it was.

We dropped thousands of bombs on Guam because it was next door to Vietnam and had some leftover bombs in our planes.

"Due in part to anti-Soviet sentiment and the high casualties among children because of this mine, there are widespread rumors in Afghanistan that the mine was deliberately designed to attract children; in reality, the mine's shape was dictated by aerodynamics."

5 seconds to read your garbage and trigger my automatic 'someone is thinking of the children' gag reflex, one minute to look it up.  Don't be the living embodiment of FW:FW:FW:FW:FW:FW:FW:  Look stuff up, check multiple sources.
